Biblical Eyesight Emerging Forefront
When was the last time you woke up and thought to yourself, “oh boy, I cannot wait till I spend my time with God today and read His Word?” For me personally, if I don’t, my day is not complete. It is lacking, and I am missing something. Often we do not read His Word because we are not excited about it. It also doesn’t do anything for us because we do not expect it to change to us and speak directly to us. Here are a couple of Scripture passages to consider:
Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God. And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual. The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned. I Corinthians 2:12-14 ESV
For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 ESV
The author in the following post discusses how we sometimes compare Scripture reading to teaching kids to eat vegetables. If we tell or kids that veggies are gross, but they have to eat them; they will enjoy eating them. On the other hand if we tell them that veggies are awesome and hype them up at dinner time; the odds of them eating them increase. We need to treat Scripture reading the same way. We need to tell people how exciting it is to read the Bible, and show them how God is speaking to us on a daily basis. This will encourage others to read the Bible more.
